The use of plant molluscicides in schistosomiasis control: advantages, problems, prospects

, : The use of plant molluscicides in schistosomiasis control: advantages, problems, prospects. Vector control of schistosomiasis using native African plants: Seminar, Brussels, 24 March 1992: 19-24

The development of plant molluscicides has been overshadowed in the past by the advantages which seemed to be offered by commercially available products. More recently, changes in emphasis in schistosomiasis control strategy with the development of chemotherapy and the use of integrated disease management have influenced the importance attached to intermediate host control.
